Sunday, August 3oth was a BIG day in Birmingham, Alabama as the long-awaited Southern Bridal Expo (produced by Elite Events) energized the entire region! The exclusive event featured Showtime Events as one of 70-80 companies with booths exhibiting at the show. Over 700 brides had preregistered to attend.
With only 2 wedding shows a year in the region the excitement shared by all in attendance (vendors and guests) was high! Approx. 2,000 brides, grooms, and helpers eagerly walked the show floor meeting with vendors, taking pictures, and gathering everything for their upcoming weddings.
Booth representatives were eager to discuss gowns, catering, photography, lighting, decor and venues with the happy brides. In addition major department stores Belk and JCPenney’s were on site to assist in gift registry.
The stimulated crowd swarmed Showtime’s booth which featured stunning light displays and an elegant Austrian swag backdrop. An Airstar balloon was raised high above the booth and could be seen from all corners of the Expo. On the balloon was The Wharf logo. The Wharf is the Gulf Coast’s most exciting and new hot spot for spectacular weddings, as well as other social and corporate events. With multiple indoor and outdoor locations for events (including a brand new state of the art convention center), The Wharf is an unmatched special events location!
Showtime Events booth also featured an Ice Magic acrylic LED bar, acrylic LED cocktail and sweetheart tables, and incredible place settings. The Showtime Events staff gave away a gift basket filled with gift certificates and products from Wharf merchants. A special thank you to the donating organizations: Sand Dollar Lifestyles, Sassy Britches, Go Fish Clothing and Jewelry Company, Shucker’s Oyster Bar, Villagio Grille, RumRunners, Rafter’s Restaurant and Sports Bar, The Dock Store at the Wharf, and Showtime Events.
A fashion show held at the end of the expo filled the crowd with enthusiasm and purpose. It was a fantastic show!
